 Pacific Northwest Basket Weaver This site uses the example of Native American basket weaving to demonstrate mathematical concepts (namely, Cartesian coordinates). The content provides a background of this cultural tradition while explaining related mathematical concepts. An interactive applet is also included which allows students to create their own basket design. The interdisciplinary unit may be useful for classes on Native... http://www.ccd.rpi.edu/Eglash/csdt/na/pnwb/weavework.html
 Virtual Bead Loom This site uses the example of Native American beadwork to demonstrate mathematical concepts (specifically, Cartesian coordinates). The materials include an interactive virtual beadloom with which students can create their own beadwork design. The interdisciplinary lesson may be used in conjunction with instruction on Native American culture and traditions. http://www.ccd.rpi.edu/Eglash/csdt/na/loom/index.html
 Navajo Rug Weaver This site uses the example of Native American rug weaving to demonstrate the mathematical concept of Cartesian coordinates. The unit provides a background on the cultural tradition of rug weaving. An interactive applet is also included, which lets students design their own geometric weaving pattern. This interdisciplinary unit may be useful in classrooms learning about Native American culture and... http://www.ccd.rpi.edu/Eglash/csdt/na/rugweaver/index.html
 Anishnaabe Arcs This site uses the example of Native American building design to demonstrate the mathematical concepts of angles, coordinates and parabolas. Tutorials on arc geometry and arc coordinates are included. This interdisciplinary material would be useful in a classroom learning about Native American culture and mathematics simultaneously. http://www.ccd.rpi.edu/Eglash/csdt/na/arcs/index.html
 Additive Manufacturing: Standard Terminology for Additive Manufacturing - Coordinate Systems and Test Methodologies This classroom module will give students "an introduction to the terminology used when using the coordinate system and testing methodologies for additive manufacturing." The lesson focuses on orienting students to the Cartesian coordinate system, including x, y, and z coordinates, and the standard ASTM International terminology. The lesson is intended to be delivered in lecture format and should... http://materialseducation.org/educators/matedu-modules/docs/...
